Teacher Applications Flood Hawaii Schools
Hawaii's education department has been inundated with thousands of applications from people all over the world after bringing attention to the state's teacher shortage, but officials say it has been frustrating to find that many applicants have little or no teaching experience.
Officials said more than 8,300 people from 98 countries have registered on the department website, and nearly 5,000 of them have completed their applications.
The department is expected to have as many as 1,600 vacancies next school year and has sent recruitment teams to meet with applicants throughout the United States.
